Actually i have done this before but however i am not using drivers what you are using. I'm on 260.18 newest WHQL update however.

This never happened to me before with older drivers and i don't wanna revert back. I wish Microsoft would fix this retarded error lol.

You don't really have a choice then bud, new new drivers suck when it comes to gaming. I recommend reverting back to the 275.33 atleast.

Right i found it. But why am i using VGA when i wanna use straight DVI. Excuse my brain fart today but i wanna use DVI so why do i need to use the adapter? Does this mean i gotta use VGA settings or is the adapter to make VGA into DVI? Can someone clear that a bit for me? Sorry i'm being stupid today. Tired lol.

I was only recommending VGA to people with TV's (LCD's and LED's and Plasmas) where they were having issues with the HZ automatically getting set in certain areas... This is always my suggestion for a fix...

Wait a min i have adapters. All i need to do is plug in the DVI adapter and run the VGA cable into the adapter and then plug the VGA into the monitor.

Problem is, wouldn't i not get high quality on my LCD monitor using VGA thus when i should be using DVI? I just felt annoyed by my refresh rate monitor issue and i keep telling myself i think it's the video card drivers fault. Unless i'm wrong and i do it and i may see the refresh rate at default setting by then? Theories?

OK i changed cables and used dvi adapter for my vga cable and i booted the computer and refresh rate still shows 59hz. LAME SAUCE!

I think i'm gonna just probably buy a new monitor. It's time to get a new one soon anyways because i had this for three years. I'm done with it and in the mood for 1920x1080p now.

I actually fixed it myself last night. I was messing around with Desktop settings and video card settings and set RESIZE desktop and now it's 60hz and yes i do intend to get a new monitor anyways. I had this current one for three years and it's warranty itself is expired anyways.

I do wanna get a new one. Gonna wait for Black Fridays cuz that's the best time of the month in November to upgrade a lot of stuff. Saving money does take some tolerance but i can handle the patience biggrin.gif Besides getting Batman and BF 3 soon lmao.

NCspecV81 you sir are a GENIUS, this WORKS!

I have been trying to figure out for days what was wrong with the screen tearing, it was not the monitor, not the GPU (ATI 6870) but Windows 7 always setting 59 hz instead of 60 hz and this fixed it for good.

Thanks a lot!
